Dumb DeLay Quote Du Jour

Ken AshfordRepublicans, Supreme CourtLeave a Comment

Amazingly, Tom DeLay is going after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.  Apparently, DeLay is ignorant of the fact that Kennedy was a Reagan appointtee, and while occasionally a "swing vote", he is undisputably right-of-center.

But DeLay really steps in the steamy hot Texas cow manure when he says this:

“We’ve got Justice Kennedy writing decisions based upon international law, not the Constitution of the United States? That’s just outrageous,” DeLay told Fox News Radio. “And not only that, but he said in session that he does his own research on the Internet? That is just incredibly outrageous.”

It’s "incredibly outrageous" for a judge to do legal research on the Internet?  I hate to burst your bubble, Tom, but every lawyer (except for the very aged who never learned computers) does research on the Internet.  The days of cavernous dusty-book lined law libraries are virtually over.  And it has been that way for over a decade.

Of course, what DeLay probably prefers is that judges resort to books when it comes to doing research.  Specifically, one book: the Bible.
